PCHAS operates two mentoring programs. In Texas, the Elevate Mentoring Program connects trained community members with children who wish to focus on one of the "three C's": character, college or career. Elevate mentors understand that not every child will have or choose the same path. Mentors help children, ages 5-18, learn how to set goals and build relationships. Transportation is provided and weekly meetings occur after school hours and on weekends.
In Missouri, Therapeutic Mentoring accepts referrals from families and school counselors for children ages 5-19. Therapeutic mentors, who are paid, have a degree in a social science or education. They meet with each child and his/her family to set goals and reach those goals. Mentors meet with the children at home, school or in the community at least once a week for up to a year. The program is free to any at-risk child in the areas served.
